Boring to say the least. Nothing to look at. Old building left to decay with little protection from the government. The entrance guards ask for money to all tourists, despite sitting under a sign that says free entrance.

This is an old Dutch fortress converted into a museum. The museum is full of pieces from the local culture and history of South Sulawesi.

Lovely old place. A quiet spot in this busy city. The museum is well worth a visit. We were lucky enough to meet some university students who kindly walked round with us explaining and chatting as we went. A lovely experience.
